Toothpicks are an essential item for many people. Way back in in 1870, Charles Foster invented a machine that produced millions of wooden toothpicks per day. Pretty much since then, they have become a staple commercial item for millions.
And with the explosion of CBD products that we’ve seen in recent times, it was only a matter of time before CBD-infused toothpicks
became a thing. Today, we will be talking about our PureKana Pure Picks - we'll discuss how to use them (properly!), and talk about why we think this product is a CBD essential for everyday life.
What are CBD Pure Picks?
Pure Picks is the "PureKana take" on CBD-infused toothpicks. They’re similar to other toothpicks, but with the added benefit of 25mg of some of the purest cannabidiol on the market. These novel infused products allow users to get a healthy dose of CBD, while also providing the traditional (and at times life-saving) functionality of an actual toothpick. And of course, they provide an invigorating rush of flavor at the same time.
We use authentic hemp extract to make our CBD toothpicks, meaning that in addition to cannabidiol, they are packed full of other beneficial hemp phytocompounds. There is no need to worry about THC content, though, because our picks only contain trace amounts - well below the limit of 0.3%.
Pure Picks also contain spilanthes extract (also called the “toothache plant”), which is a detoxifying agent that has a subtle numbing effect on the mouth. The picks contain xylitol as well, which is also beneficial for dental health and may even help prevent tooth decay. Many dentists recommend using xylitol-sweetened chewing gum for this reason.
Our CBD Pure Picks are available in ten delicious flavors, including:
- Blue Raspberry
- Caramel Apple
- Lemon Lime
- Mountain Berry
- Orange Buzz
- Pink Lemonade
- Strawberry Limeade
- Tropical Mint
As mentioned, each PureKana Pure Pick is packed with 25mg of CBD. In a tube of 10 picks, you receive a total of 250mg of CBD for just $29. That’s just $0.12 per milligram of CBD -- you will be hard-pressed to find better value for money.
Why CBD Toothpicks Should Be An Everyday Essential Item
CBD toothpicks have a number of benefits. Of course, toothpicks in general have the benefit of helping clean unwanted bits of food out of your teeth, which believe it or not actually promotes overall oral health.
Of course, the addition of CBD means the benefits are twofold. Also, the uptake of CBD occurs much faster when used orally, because it bypasses the metabolic and digestive systems and travels directly to the bloodstream via glands in the oral cavity. This means that the effects are (usually) felt quicker compared to things like capsules
Additionally, the physical act of chewing on CBD toothpicks can be great for nerves and restlessness - and you may even find that it helps calm you down. Similar to chewing gum, using PureKana Pure Picks could also "distract" your mouth, preventing you from performing other habits like smoking or over-eating.
How to Use CBD Pure Picks
Using our CBD Pure Picks is pretty simple. They contain a pre-measured dose of 25mg CBD, meaning you don’t need to mess around with droppers. As you pick and chew on the toothpick, the active ingredients are slowly released into your mouth. Keep in mind however that the CBD goodness is infused deep into the actual pick, so you'll need to use it for a significant amount of time in order to take full advantage of the active components.
We recommend spending about 25 minutes on one side of the toothpick, and once the time is up, simply turn it around and chew on the other side. If your mouth begins to tingle, do not be alarmed! This is the spilanthes extract working, and it is entirely harmless. Aside from the tingling, the tantalizing flavors - and of course the potent dose of CBD - will also start to kick in.
Again, the active ingredients of the CBD toothpicks enter the bloodstream almost immediately via tissues in the sublingual cavities. The spilanthes extract may also play a role in the effectiveness of CBD toothpicks; it increases saliva production, which may actually "pull" more cannabinoids out of the toothpick.
